Honoring A Teacher: A Tribute To Leslie Lerner at Art Ovation Hotel, Autograph Collection at Sarasota, Florida

Honoring a Teacher: A Tribute To Leslie Lerner

April 18, 2019 - October 2, 2019
Leslie Lerner (1949-2005) began his artistic career in California in the 1960s, where he was influenced by San Francisco's pop culture Hollywood's stage sets. He became a sort of "visual writer" whose paintings depicted the tales of an imaginary voyage titled "My Life in France." His magnificent world was inhabited by his alter-egos "The Man with the Wooden Arm" and "The Poor Boy." Through his illustrated stories, he was able to transport the viewers to fantastic places and share with them a beautiful, dreamlike world.

Robert Doyon: Walkabout

April 18, 2019 - October 2, 2019
Robert Doyon is a self-described "Swiss Artist's Knife," with skills and interests in all sorts of creative endeavors. After spending many years working in design and fabrication in Orlando's theme parks, theatre, and museum exhibits, and assisting other artists in the making of their artwork, he decided to nurture his own artist's spirit full time. At the age of 48, he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with Honors in Sculpture/Painting from the Ringling College of Art & Design (1994), in Sarasota. Since then, he has focused on integrating his previous work experience to his personal storyline and visual freedom.
